iQOO has officially launched its next-gen Android flagship series iQOO 11. The lineup has two models iQOO 11 and iQOO 11 Pro which is quite identical in terms of the spec sheet. There are only a few differences here and there that justify the price difference and the "Pro" moniker.
The iQOO 11 Pro sports a 6.78-inch 2K (3200 x 1440 pixels) Samsung AMOLED display with HDR10+ support and 144Hz refresh rate. The panel has DCI-P3 wide color gamut support and a peak brightness of 1800 nits. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor which is the newest and greatest from the chipmaker. There are multiple configuration variants featuring up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of onboard storage.
There is a triple rear camera setup featuring a 50-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.75 aperture, a 50-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.27 aperture, and a 13-megapixel portrait sensor with f/2.46 aperture. The front camera on the phone is a 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.45 aperture housed inside the punch-hole.
The whole package is powered by a 4,700mAh battery with support for 200W fast charging. It also has 50W wireless fast charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. The phone will boot OriginOS 3 based on Android 13 out of the box. Other noteworthy features include a USB Type-C port, NFC, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, and 5G connectivity.
